Let’s Get Started!

Rnd 1:  Start with a magic ring of 6 sc and join in the first st.  From this point on, do not join at the end of each round.  Work in a continuous round after this point.  (If you don’t know how to make a magic circle, check out the 5 minute video tutorial by Brittney at bhooked crochet.)

Rnd 2:  Work 2 sc in each st around [12]

Rnd 3:  Repeat Rnd 2 [24]

Rnd 4:  (Sc in each of the next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times [30]

Rnd 5:  (Sc in each of the next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st) rep 6 times [36]

Rnd 6:  Working in the back loops of the previous round, (sc in the each st around) [36]

Rnd 7-8:  Sc in both loops in each st around [36]

Rnd 9:  (Sc in each of the next 3 st, SC2tog) rep 7 times, sc in last st [29]

Rnd 10-14:  Sc in each stitch around [29]

Join color for scarf (gray is used in my photo)

Rnd 15-16:  Sc in each st around [29]

Switch back to white for the snowman’s head

Rnd 17-22:  Sc in each st around [29]

Join color for hat (black is used in my photo)

Rnd 23-24:  Sc in each st around [29]


Turn cozy inside out and use a darning needle to weave in yarn ends

Turn cozy right side out and use a darning needle to embroider the face (eyes, nose and mouth)

(Optional) Weave a long stran of the scarf color yarn (gray used in photo) in and out of stitches in the scarf area.  Leave long ends to tie a bow or brush the ends for a frayed effect.

Slip your 8oz mason jar inside the cozy, fill with goodies and your gift is ready to share!
